Beginner Tips & Tricks to ‘Dragon City’

Dragon City game poster.

Dragon City is an android game that allows you to create over 150 versions of the winged monstrosities by tossing two dragons into a common enclosure and hoping for the best.

Dragon City‘s quests always do a great job of walking you through the basics of building habitats for specific dragons, raising dragons into adults, buying and hatching eggs, and even the act of breeding fire itself. You never get the impression that all this breeding serves any greater purpose besides raising a bunch of dragons for player-versus-player pit fights. That last goal is not even clear until you reach level 10.

Dragon City: Tips for Beginners

1. Make Sure You Know All the Elemental Dragons

Each dragon in the game fits under a specific elemental class. Check out the list below so you know exactly what elements exist: Terra, Flame, Sea, Nature, Electric, Ice, Metal, Dark, Light, War, Pure, and Legend.

2. There Are Other Types of Dragons Besides Elemental Ones

Along with the Elemental Dragons, there are three other classifications of dragons you need to be knowledgeable about. Along with these other types are a few examples of those dragon types:

  • Hybrid Dragons: Hot Metal Dragon, Juggernaut Dragon
  • Rare Hybrid: Leviathan Dragon, Cool Fire Dragon
  • Legend: Mirror Dragon, Crystal Dragon
  • Exclusive: Thor Dragon, Great White Dragon

3. Set Lower Times for Food if You are Low on Gold

Harvesting food for your dragons takes some time and a lot of your gold currency. The longer time you spend harvesting your grub, the more money it costs to finish it. Choose foods that take less time to harvest, such as dragon balls and hot dragon chilis, if you are harvesting on a tight budget. When your pockets are a little fuller, then you will be able to spend some more money on spike balls and star shines.

4. The Basics Behind The Habitat System

You can place any of your dragons in different habitats and start to net you more gold per minute. All of the habitats that are available focus on different elements which generate different amounts of gold. Place your elemental dragons with related elemental crystals to gain 20 percent of more gold per minute. Match up your dragons with the crystal element that matches them if you can.

Dragon City‘s gameplay contains some nods to standard social gaming conventions, such as visiting your friend’s dragon cities.
